Turquoise happened to be one of Queen Victoria’s favorite stones. While celebrating her marriage to Prince Albert, she gave each of her ladies in waiting a portrait ring with a halo of turquoise. The twelve women who helped carry the train of her wedding dress received brooches that Albert designed himself that depicted an eagle entirely made up of turquoise. Albert also designed an impressive turquoise parure containing a tiara, bib necklace, cross shaped brooch, and cabochon ring- all featuring turquoise.

It seems as though that Queen Victoria was the most influential trend setter of the 1800s as her style was incessantly copied. And thus, turquoise became a favorite of jewelry admirers of the 19th century. The dreamy blue-green stone can found in many Victorian pieces, this ring being a magnificent example. Two rows of square cut turquoise are separated by a strip of warm gold. Turquoise and yellow gold is one of our favorite combinations as it incites visions of natural elements. The gold bead like border adds a beautiful detail and each shoulder has a subtle infinity sign shape creating added sentiment. We love this ring for how wearable it is- it would effortlessly cool with just about anything.
